Most parents would probably agree that a love of reading is the most important thing their children could acquire in the course of their education.Yet even parents who love to read themselves sometimes find that their kids just aren't interested in books. What do you do about your reluctant reader?

Mary Leonhardt has the answer. In Parents Who Love Reading, Kids Who Don't, she shows how to awaken, or reawaken, your child to the joy of reading. Drawing on her experience as a teacher (and a parent) of reluctant readers, she identifies the seven stages that children go through as they develop their reading skills and outlines what parents can do to help them along. Her advice is clear, down-to-earth, and proven effective.

Mary Leonhardt also offers tips on how to deal with the special problems poor readers often face at school, and how to cope with TV and other distractions. Finally, she offers an extensive list of kid-recommended reading -- not books from school reading lists, but certified fun-to-read titles chosen in a poll of her own students. Her methods have worked with scores of students. If you are the parent of a reluctant reader, this is the book both of you need.
